Identity unlocks Destiny

II Cor 3:17,18 .....are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory as by the Spirit of the Lord... We walk toward freedom to freedom securing our identity in Him. Identity in Him causes our confidence, zeal, to rise up within us as we see ourselves as God sees us...Divine acceleration....Celebrate your calling today...Step into it....deployment not employment.....Identity unlocks destiny.....where the Spirit of the lord is there is liberty....

The Hastening of the Lord's return...

    II Peter 3:12 says ..looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God...The timing of the Lord's return is directly related to the heart condition and activity of His church. In Matthew 24:13,14 the bible states "and this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations and the end will come. Matthew 24 paints the picture of the signs of the time and the end of the age. Religious deception, social & political unrest, natural calamities, disloyalty & persecutions, they are all evidence that we are in the end times, True believers are to persevere & endure in spreading the gospel.The word "endures" in, verse 13 of the chapter, from Strong's concordance, is to hold one's ground in conflict, bear up against adversity, hold out under stress, stand firm. preserve under pressure, wait calmly and courageously. It goes on to state it is not passive resignation to fate and mere patience, but the active, energetic resistance to defeat that allows calm and brave endurance.This paints the picture of how Jesus suffered in fulfilling the will of God.
     Acts 3:18-21 says " But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has fulfilled. Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that the times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of His holy prophets since the world began. We the believers & followers of Jesus are in the times of the spiritual fulfillment that times of restoration of all things is at hand.
     True believers have a repentant heart to bring the times of refreshing to His church and hasten the the coming day of the Lord. II Peter 3:11.12 states..Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming day of God....Acts 3:20.." and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before.....
     If you are part of God's true army in these end times, preach the true gospel in all your worlds as a witness and hasten His return to heal our land..

Living life in God's covenant today

     We settle God's Word on earth by believing it, standing on it, and doing it. God's word sent forth will never return barren but will produce His kingdom's work her on earth. Isaiah 55:11 gives us the principle that God has to say something once and it will and still comes to pass. God does not have to say again that any human being be healed or that their sins have been washed away. He has already said it and it is fact. God's word says by Jesus's stripes we are healed and by His blood our sins have been washed away. His body was broken for our healing and His blood poured out for sin to establish a new and better covenant for us today. It is up to us, His church, to establish His word on earth and remove the enemy's hand. We enforce the defeat of the hand of the enemy God has already won. Are you believing, standing, and doing His word today? Thank Him today that God does not pick and choose whom he will keep His word to. He is the same yesterday today and forever Amen...

God's word is the final rule in Faith & Actions

The Word of God is our final authority, Our experiences must be judged by His scriptures.
Psalms 119:89-92 Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven. Thy faithfulness to all generations: you have established the earth, and it abides. They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are your servants. Unless your law had been my delight, I should the have perished in my afflictions.
God's word is forever settled in Heaven, we must settled it on earth...
Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come , your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 
Engage... make it so saints...

Pleasing to our Heavenly Father

There is nothing that compares to the joy and satisfaction that Christians receive as we read the Word of God with the eyes of faith. Then and only then do we walk out our Christian life with His Spirit reflecting the abundant life that is promised by Him. The 1st chapter of Colossians lights the path of a true believer bringing forth God's fruit from the day we heard and knew the grace of God in truth. Colossians 1:19 states "For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. Verse 2 of the same Chapter begins with "and you...".That's God's intention in all His ways is to bring us into a perfect relationship with Him. His reconciliation of us to Him was made perfect through Christ shedding His blood on the cross for you and me. Not only were we reconciled, our records of wrong taken out of the way, the shedding of blood presents us holy and faultless and irreproachable in the Father's presence. God is true to His word and has done and will do what He has promised. Verse 23 states "if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven..." The Gospel, the good news, was designed for us without restrictions to be the doorway to know the Heavenly Father. Share your faith to those around you and be a co-laborer with Christ today.      

Revealing God's Love

Revealing God's love to mankind is our purpose for living this life in Christ as a Christian. So many distractions or endeavors can lead us in many other directions and accomplishments. To have the fullness of His love developed in us & working through us toward mankind is our inheritance, to be imparted & displayed to others. Only His wellspring of love, flowing & refreshing us daily, casts out all fear of failure (I John 4:18). Obtaining only the fruit of this world’s spoils leaves us empty of true purpose & destiny. When we’re rooted & grounded in Christ's love (Ephesians 3:17) we receive comprehension of life's purpose. The root of our life's purpose can only be established in relationship with our creator, not the creation. Sharing the relationship we have with Jesus to those around us fulfills the true purpose we were created for. Let his love overtake you today & animate you to share His love with someone. Invite them to accept Jesus as their savoir and live in His love today. 

Faith works through God's love

Running the race of faith indeed comes with many temptations that can hinder us from running the race with strong faith. God's word states in Galatians 5:7-9 "You ran well, who hindered you from obeying the truth". This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump." Obeying the truth of God's unconditional love toward us who believe, is how we sustain our walk of faith. Any kind of teaching or actions that vary from God's gift of grace, will cause us to vary from living the abundant life God promises. A little degree off the charted course God designed for us will cause us to miss the mark on our trajectory of faith. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love. Our faith increases only when we believe what God's word says.."that while we were still sinners Christ died for us". Anchor yourself to grow in the knowledge of His love for us and your faith will soar to accomplish the things He has called us to be.

A Father's day prayer..

Praying today Malachi 4:4-6 ..that God will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to the fathers....Jehova Rapha has given His son of righteousness as the the rising sun to bring salvation & rescue, repair, to the souls of the fathers & children...let this day be the day of salvation for fathers & the children all around the be it (Amen)....

Knowing the love of Christ...

Ephesians 3:18-19 .."may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height--to know the love of God which passes knowledge: that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. The word "pass" means to surpass in throwing, to throw over or beyond anything, to exceed, to transcend.  God's love is the supernatural power that works in us and is needed to bring us to the place of comprehending the events of this life. The word used to "to comprehend in verese 18 means to receive experientially, not just intellectually. When we keep in view God's love for us, and let the Holy Spirit confirm God's love to  us, we go through situations in life with the actions of faith, hope & love as our anchor. find out more... take time & visit a Sunday fellowship this week.......  

Representing Christ's heart for people

If Christ is our hope we want to share His love we have experienced to the world around us. Luke 19:10 states the son of Man (Jesus) has come to seek and to save that which was lost. If we are consumed with God's love we want to see others come to wholeness in every area of life. The church, the living presence of Jesus in His people, is the force that sets the captives free. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal God's love to you today and experience His compelling forcce to share your faith with the world around you. To find out more,.. attend a Sunday fellowship this week...
